The Courtyard Barn is now finished…
We converted an old barn, previously a coaching house in the pub’s courtyard, into this lovely room, to be used as a restaurant seating area and a small function room for private events such as birthday celebrations, live music, christenings and wakes. During the refurbishment, the barn has had a new roof with insulation, repointed walls, new concrete floors with wood flooring on top, damp proofing, new electrics, a woodburning stove, new windows/doors with decking area outside, painting and decorating including restoring the old beams
The Courtyard Barn now has bi-fold doors leading onto a decking area with accessibility ramp and a couple of bistro tables and chairs, a wood-burning stove, speakers and music system to stream music or play CDs, a serving hatch into the kitchen and loose furniture to enable a flexible layout.
The room sits 30 people comfortably for dinner, 25 people if there is space needed for e.g. a musician or 40 people if it’s just being used for drinks and a buffet. It is ideal for large tables!
We are still working out the best use for this room, so for the time being, it will be open at weekends and busy summer days only (it will sometimes be booked out for private events – please check with us). Whilst the pub and courtyard are dog friendly, dogs will not be allowed in this room as we would like to keep an area available for customers who would prefer to dine without dogs around them.
We already have a few private bookings and expect this to increase as the year goes on. Please phone us to discuss a private event, large table or to book: 01669 650221
